Check the Filters for your Furnace
One important part of the HVAC system is the filter. The filter should be checked on a regular basis, and replace when recommended. Dirty filters can greatly reduce the efficiency of the system. It can also increase the energy costs each month. With a good air filter, it can capture the dirt and pollutants that are in the air. This will improve the air quality in your home. You will find it easier to breath, as well as keeping the system working efficiently and at top performance levels.
The Thermostat Should be Inspected
When the HVAC system is inspected, the thermostat should be checked as well. The thermostat should be reading the correct temperature. In the winter, set it to at least sixty eight degrees. Each degree higher can at one percent to the energy costs you spend. If you are looking to get a new thermostat, consider a programmable thermostat. This can help keep the unit efficient, while also saving you money each month.
Check the Ductwork in your Home
When the ductwork is inspected in your home, listen and feel for any air that might be escaping from the ducts. This is the quickest way to tell if the air being produced is wasted. Make sure to contact us and we can inspect the ductwork and other components of the HVAC system. If there is an issue we can repair or replace what is needed. This will help get your home back to being warm and comfortable. The vents should also be inspected to ensure they are free of any dust, pet hair, or pollutants. This can clog the airflow to each of the room in your home. If there are radiators, make sure that furniture is not placed directly in front of the heating elements. Having blockages can reduce the chance of the air circulating throughout the room as well. It is recommended to have regular maintenance done to the system so you can decrease the chance of an issue happening. A professional inspection and tune-up by us can help ensure the heating system is clean and all the parts are in good shape. This will keep the HVAC unit operating at maximum efficiency.
